I am using tapatalk for Android, and it could be awesome if Tapatalk could be used to access the forum.

I know new forum software is coming very soon, so please add this feature.

I assumed that you was involved due to the comments you made in this thread, sorry about that.

According to the following thread (ID 7) in Google Code the new Forum as i read it should have launched about the 1. of December

Hi mowcius

You wrote a while ago that new forum software was coming soon, any news on this issue?

Two possible forums are currently being tested.


Could you tell us some more  smiley

I would like to have a qoute button direct from the post as well.
I don't think it would be a problem with quote in quote, it is just a matter of allowing max 2 quotes in quotes or something like that.

As it is now you don't even have the ability to add the name of whom you are quoting [quote=name][/quote]

Maybe it is time to upgrade the forum?  smiley

Why are the moderators of this forum so afraid of sticky posts??

I mean allmost daily I see compliants over posters not providing the necessary information.

A sticky post to inform on how to ask for help and other sticky posts to help posters, would make life easier for everyone.

According to Mowcius a new forum is coming soon. Maybe the new forum has that feature.

Try this, I'm pretty sure these holes are for the Led's and switch.

I had a problem with Processing. It opened sketches very slow.
It was because I had my workfolder/sketches on a mapped network drive. As soon as I stored my sketches localy everything was ok.

What I am thinking about is something like you can see on the above picture.

As you can see, here you can step through the source code (sketch) while keeping an eye on your variables, locals and more, this is very usefull when debugging complicated calculations, string handling and more (At least I think that ;-) )

You can set breakpoints to stop the code in specific places to check to see if everything is as you expected at this point.

The hardware simulation is a minor thing in this matter, the I/O pins can be set to 0 or 1 by a click with the mouse, nothing more, I think this simple I/O control is good enough to test many things. A simple Analog input indicator with selectable analog port. With these "simple" hardware simulation features you can come a long way.

The above simulator is a screenshot of Bascom-AVR, and if you would like to how it works you can download a demo version (can only compile 4 Kb code)

Maybe I am the only one who will find this feature usefull, especialy as a beginner to Arduino/C++.

And just to be clear, I am not complaining about Arduino, I think Arduino is just awsome, but everything can be better ;-)

Maybe this kind of simulator I am talking about is impossible to make due to some technical issues in the Arduino IDE, the Compiler or other things, I don't know but I think it could be awesome to have it.

I was not thinking about simulating external hardware.

What I was thinking was something like epanda wrote, something like registers, variables, i/o pins, and be able to step thru code to see everything works as you expect, add breakpoints and so on.

I am a noob regarding C++ thats why I could use this, C is not the easiest language to learn :-) And believe me if I could program a simulator, I would :-)

As it is now you have to print your variables to Serial to check that your sketch is doing what you expect it to do, this gives a lot of extra coding, and this code must be removed again. I just think a simulator could be a very useful feature, not only for begginers but also for the more driven programmers.

Generally* you can't,

*however functions without Arduino specific calls may be testable in a standard C++ environment e.g. Visual Studio 2008. But as ints, floats, doubles, RAM etc may have other sizes, this creates its own pitfalls. ==> don't do it

Is it something that could be done, I mean in future releases of the Arduino IDE, or is it simply impossible to do due to some technical stuff in the compiler?

I don't think so.

But it could be really great to have some kind of simulator, it would make debugging much easier. I have been programming AVR using Bascom AVR, and this IDE has a very good simulator, now when moving to Arduino the only thing I am missing is a simulator.

Here is a screenshot of Bascom AVR simulator.
